Hello all,
 
Any thoughts on this? I'm still in the testing stages....but, here goes. I've had very loose/watery stools since February, pain just under the left breast and travels down the abdomen, acid reflux, very unusual smelling gas (if that's possible!), burping and  bloating. I've had 4 blood tests, 2 bowel tests, 1 colonoscopy, 1 Abdominal CT scan with dyes and I'm scheduled for a sygmoidoscopy/biopsy in 5 days. Is the pain on the left side typical of IBS? Food chooses do NOT affect the bowels. High fiber, HIgh fat, caffiene, yummy muffins, milk products, spicy foods or bland oatmeal...no changes to the stools. What are your thoughts?

Well the high fat and caffiene may very well be making a difference...if you only give up those types of foods for a couple of days that's likely not long enough to know for sure if they contribute (but they actually do) it takes time for the body to recover from that type of diet abuse, you wouldn't see changes in only a few days.

My bum is broken....there's a big crack down the middle of it!  LOL  :)

Hey Joelly,
I have the same problem and went and had a bizillion tests done and all my MD told me was that it was IBS. I think it's my gallbladder but the tests came back negative. It is terrible. The pain is terrible. I dont know what I'm going to do but I wish you the best for all your tests. Maybe they will find something so they can fix it. Keep posting and let us know how things are going. If you find any relief please share it. I'm in misery here and would love some advice! I hope we get some answers. I have a question or two for ya! Are you male or female? Also my pain is on the right upper side under my breast, and goes straight through me to my back and then spreads up my neck and head and also down the whole right side of my body. Does that ever happen to you?

Hi Thirsty,

I'm a female and the pain is always on the upper left side, never on the right. But, it does come and go. I find that with a heat pad and some tylenol and a couch, the pain does subside. However, I don;t have the pain ALL the time, very infrequently, but I do have the soft or watery stools most always. I'll keep you posted. Today is a good day. Even the weather is great. And Thirsty, put your trust in Jesus and do as James Chapter 5 says, seek prayer and be prayed for. I do!

:-)  Joelly
